Do you want to be a ruthless dictator? Psychologists believe the dark triad of personality — Machiavellianism, narcissism and psychopathy – might help you succeed in life.
To help you realize the darkness of your personality, BBC has designed a fun quiz that can help determine how evil you really are. It was inspired by questionnaires created by psychologists Delroy Paulhus and Daniel Jones. To measure your own dark side, choose how much you agree or disagree with the simple statements. High scores attained on Machiavellianism, narcissism and psychopathy indicate malevolence.
So, have fun discovering how malicious you really are by answering honestly. Share your results below or on social media.
